It takes alot of skill, agility, and muscle to keep a 2 seater going fast in rough conditions....especially at the speeds that the RXP is capable. But it can be done....Steve Friebe is a good example.
That's why the 3 seaters s-ck for wake-jumping but excel offSHOre....they tend to plow and punch thru the wave.....especially the Ultra.
Go to pwcoffshore.com ......its a very informative site....really good info....oh..and lifter wedges can help but there is an inherent risk in using them......disclaimer for me and Greenhulk.....I'm addicted to offshore.... I love it...be safe and have fun

Yep, for me that is the number one thing I hate about the RXP and the number one thing I loved about my GPR. Riding fast in big chop on an RXP is much more of an ass puckering experience. I always felt in control with the GPR and rarely do on the RXP, but that certainly gets the adrenaline pumping. In the end, stock for stock, the RXP-X just had too many more advantages over a GPR for me not to make the switch.
Me and a buddy setup a buoy course last weekend and ran our RXP-X's. That machine was made for that type of riding. It rails in the corners and pulls like a mofo coming out of them. My old modified 1200R would have been eatin alive.
I think the RE block offs are supposed to help straight line tracking through chop and skegs would be good too. An aftermarket intake grate should help too. The X skis track better in chop than the 215 RXP's by far and I think along with the bigger intake, the massive intake grate lends to that as well.

Had the same feeling when I went from my GPR to the RXP, I felt like I was sitting on top of the RXP waiting to be flung off, the GPR made me feel as if I were part of the ski, if that makes sence.
